I imported the DNS Zone records from a cPanel domain (105 records!) with 4 subdomains. I had some issues at the beginning and received guidance re proxies that got me up and running!
I now want to complete the configuration and need to understand what should be proxied and what shouldn’t be proxied!
For each subdirectory, I have the following A records:
autoconfig.subdomains (one for each subdomain)
According to the Email Troubleshooting Tutorial, the mail A record should be DNS Only . Should the rest of the A records be proxied?
There are also several CNAME records. Some can be proxied, others can’t - they are marked DNS only with no . Should the ones that can be proxied be proxied?
Thanks very much,
The typical recommendation is that anything needed for mail should be so items like autodiscover. If cpanel is just a web interface, then that can be proxied. If webmail is web interface for the email and doesn’t receive or send mail then that can be proxied as well.
@Cyb3r-Jak3 thanks. I’ll have to do some research on the meaning of these cPanel DNS zones to see which are mail related.
Any ideas on the CNAME records that aren’t DNS only with no ?
Some might not be proxiable if the end services are also on Cloudflare
@Cyb3r-Jak3 thanks very much.
I had to find out more about those cPanel zones. There wasn’t anything useful available in the cPanel docs so I asked support at my hosting company.
I was told that the following DNS zones are created by cPanel as links for those who want to use them:
I was told that I could delete them if I didn’t use them.
I told the TSR that I found that very strange, especially seeing as this information isn’t explained anywhere I could find in the cPanel docs! But then, cPanel’s docs aren’t the best!
